a 50/50 bulb is a mix between actinic or blue light and white light. so it should look a bit blue and a bit white.

should be fine, my understanding os actinic is that the light is colored for astetic reasons, people like the way the "softer" blue like looks on the fish and tank, I have a pc 65 watt 50/50, and it looks great... I believe the "white" light is 10k and the actinic (sp?!!!?!?!) is 7.1k... at least on my light...
